Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Hi everyone


    I’d like to ask a kind question,we all know the story of of Jesus and how he was born, but after he grew up,did Jesus ever come to love and be pleased with the magi?,did he ever save the wise men who visited him and gave him gifts? Was God pleased with them for giving Gifts to his son?

    Jesus loves everyone!

    Was he pleased with the magi? Well, I think they did a great act of faith, so probably yes!

    Keep in mind with these questions and many more that cross the minds of all of us that we cannot imagine all that lies ahead for us when we will have our minds opened to much more than we can comprehend in this life.

    For the time being, and concerning religious questions like yours, he has revealed--through Holy Scripture--what we need to know in order to fulfill his intentions for us here and now.

    They gave testimony to the kingship of Jesus and honored Him with gifts given to a king. Everything in the Bible has a reason.

    The Magi were most likely at very least over 30 years old when they met Jesus. It took that long and that kind of age to be taken seriously. Given their apparent seniority and the gifts they were able to give from their own resources or those of the people they represented I would suggest they were older still and more likely 45 plus. I reckon they may well have been dead by the time Jesus began his actual ministry given the longevity of that time and the fact it was 30 years later. Also by the time the news about Jesus reached the East, it may well have been 10 or 20 years after that.

    So their contact with Jesus was most likely the one they had with him as a child and then they went home as the scriptures say.

    They acted deferentially giving gifts, acknowledged who Jesus was, and understood better than most the significance of Him being here on earth. Also, they demonstrated their faith by making the journey. Given what they knew about Jesus how could their response to Him have been any better? I think therefore that the Magi were saved in the same way that Abraham was saved by faith.
